Meet The Queen's Beasts

British heraldry has a long tradition of using animals in its imagery. On the grounds of Queen Elizabeth II's favorite residence, Windsor Castle, is St. George's Chapel, and on the roof of the chapel are 76 heraldic statues representing the Queen's (or King's) Beasts. The original statues dated back to the 16th century but were removed in 1682. They were finally restored in 1925.
